My family and I have been guests of The Betsie River Lodge as vacationers for the past 6+ years. When the opportunity to become owners came to be, we jumped on it! We have 4 children and reside in suburban SE Michigan. We will be making some improvements and updates over the months/years ahead. Overall our plans are to continue sharing this property with respectful weekend vacationers.

Rob & Jamie Baker purchased this cabin in 2014

Having family and vacationing in the area prompted our decision to invest into the area. We truly find the mix of rural quiet with close amenities to be right for our family and friends. We love it here!

We are an active family!! Biking, fishing, hiking, golf, beaches, skiing, snowshoeing and winter activities galore!!

Cute and cozy!

  • 5 of 5
This place is super cute and as others said, the photos don't do it justice. It's a little bit of a haul because the county closed the bridge near it, but it's lovely and secluded, and close to Crystal. The pizza place at the Mobil on 115 is great. This cabin is quiet, immaculate, and well-stocked. It was nice to sit on the swing and watch the river (although warning to parents of young children, the bluff is steep so you need to keep a close eye on them) with coffee in the morning. Would love to come back for a week - the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had tons of dishes and supplies, and the fire pit beckoned at night. The owners were super helpful. We also loved the huge library of movies on VHS and DVD - something for every taste and age!

Relaxing get away....

  • 4 of 5
Let me start by saying if you are looking for a place to relax and get away from everything and sit back and watch the wildlife this is the place for you. Young and old would love this place. We came up for a weekend get away last minute. The place is so clean and cute and well put together, very open floor plan. The place is better then the pictures on the web site. Everything we needed was here. We where so impressed with the owners and how they thought of every detail, down to candles for outside and bug spray. We sat on the swing and watch the river and people floating by. I wish we could have stayed longer, two nights where not enough time here. It was nice to sit on the deck and watch the deer in the woods. At night we would grill out on either a gas or charcoal grill and have a fire. The fire wood was there for us to use. We took a short drive into Frankfort and walked the beach and did some shopping. When we call the owners to inquire about the place they where so helpful and very friendly. We will be back very soon. Thank you for a great weekend....

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here over labor day weekend, 2012. I simply can't say enough good things about this cabin! If you are looking for a private retreat in the wilderness of Northern Michigan, you should consider staying here. The owners have thought of everything. The cabin is very quaintly- yet tastefully- appointed, and everything we could have wanted or needed, we had. Tons of blankets, pillows towels, cooking utensils, etc. The view overlooking the river- with the outdoor swing- was great. Really enjoyed the fires at night in the huge firepit- roasted marshmallows, etc. It was exactly the experience we were looking for to feel like we were truly escaping the hustle and bustle of the city for a few days. There isn't a TON to do in the immediate area, but there is enough- and this is more the place to go and relax, kick your feet up for a few days, and just enjoy nature. The nearby snow mobile trails are great for jogging/hiking. We will definitely be returning! Thank you for your hospitality!!!

Lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at your cabin. (The pictures on VRBO don't do it justice.) The place was clean, cute and had plenty of towels and soap. The kitchen had what we needed and the view of the river was awesome. Sking at Crystal Mountain was great. We would highly recommend your place. Thanks.
